. you know this is one of the counties that the u.s. department of justice has sent monitors in, because we've had a history of intimidation, but i did not want to divide the community in my remarks today and what i said was is that everyone who votes tomorrow should rule. we should not have any in stance whether you're disabled or a senior, whether you are one that has not voted before, whether you have a language issue nothing should block your right to vote. i mean that whether you live on the west, east, south or the north, we must say to america that the right to vote is precious, and as my colleague said, we've got to organize around this. we are overwhelmed by blocks to voting. it stops people from voting. it treatens people from voting and we have to get away from that to keep the ideals of this constitution and what we were founded on is that we're all created equal. >> you are so right and yourar particularlation of this as a fundamental civil rights issue the core of our democracy. i think the good news is over the past months, what i don't see is a clear republican effort to
